Welcome to issue #44 of Tape Op.
I've been visiting Amsterdam this past week, staying with some friends who live here. No, I won't regale you with any sordid tales of coffee shops and the Red Light District, but I did have a great time riding my rental bike all over town and drinking a fair share of witbier. One of the best things that happened was seeing my friends and clients Richmond Fontaine play at the Paradiso to an attentive audience. To get to see a band I've worked with on over three CDs winning over a crowd and selling copies of the albums we've made was a special experience. To witness this happening over 5000 miles from home is even more rewarding. It's good to know that all that time you put into making an album can sometimes catch the interest of listeners all over the globe. After the show we went out and drank too many beers, but that's another story...
